Public Comment. Lori Anderson updated council on the new sign along Hwy 30 that is down. She has been in contact with the company to repair and they are working with Dan to get it moved. They plan to take it down until spring. Matt Van Sickle spoke about the Legacy Housing Committee. They are asking the City to again commit funds for the fix up grant. The council has agreed to $20,000. The committee plans to raise the match funds from $1,000 to $1,500 and include single family rental properties. The committee has also been looking at in fill lots and have identified vacant lots and houses. They plan to update this list annually. They have been contacting landowners to ask about their plans for these vacant lots/houses. They are looking at areas in and around town for new housing developments. They are having trouble finding builders to take on the project. Infrastructure for roads is the biggest issue. Matt also commented that the elementary school will be vacant within the next 12 months.

 

Kurt Phillips gave a presentation on the Boone County Economic Growth Corporation. He updated the council on the work they do behind the scenes, including a strategic plan, the labor shed study and having a certified ready site. He also updated council on the 2018 projects that included the Boulder’s Inn and Suites, Boone Veterinary Hospital, R.L. Fisher Eastgate Drive Project and Phase II of the industrial park. Key projects for 2019 include a new Midland Power site, a warehouse and packaging facility for White Diamond and working with Fareway on a future corporate campus. He would like to have good communication with Ogden and know what is available for buildings and lots. Margaret Liston is replacing Rick Elbert on the board. Brian Reimers would like for them to look at Ogden more and become more involved in helping us grow.
